The text in the last panel is confusing to me. I’m no grammar expert (nor Nazi), but I’m reading it as future tense — something that they’ll do in the future will land them in the fire from the frying pan.
Did Mr. Johnson perhaps make a mistake? To my mind, if the text were changed to either “Gus said we’d be jumping …” or to “Gus says we’re jumping …”, then it’d make more sense.
Not a big deal, but it caused me mentally “trip” and get distracted from what I expect was intended to be the punch line.
